“Mail Call’s legit concern, proposed stadium’s disturbing lives, 80 or 90 days a year with lights, why not put it out in the country in a nice spot? For example, left off of a right-of-way, left off of Kaetzel Road, after you pass the old railroad pass near Gapland? Design it, too, for senior citizens’ use. It won’t be in your face any given time, like the bike trail would have been.”
“I was watching on TV the huge machinery pushing through the piles of debris caused by Sandy in New York City. I was glad they had the gas and oil to run the machines, and didn’t have to depend on wind turbines. Mayor Bloomberg pledged 50 million to the Sierra Club for their Beyond Coal campaign. Strange, there were no requests for that kind of fuel.”
“Why can’t we buy the paper plant across from the existing stadium, tear down the paper plant and build a stadium on that lot, while they use the old stadium to play ball? Then tear down the old stadium and the light plant and use that plant as ample parking for the stadium goers. That way we’d get rid of two eyesores, and have our new stadium, with plenty of parking.”
“Now that the president has won a second term, I wonder if the Republican Congress will work with the bipartisanship with him. They did everything in their power once, that they said they were going to do to keep him from re-elected, but it didn’t work. So it’s time for bipartisan, not ‘me, me, me, me, me.’ But it sounds like that that’s exactly what they’re going to do again.”

“I just wanted to say that the Ron White show at 7:00 was excellent, but they do need to consider that some people that come to the show are very obnoxious. They drink before they come, they drink there, they’re loud and boisterous. They don’t consider that you’re sitting pretty close to each other and you’d like to hear the show, too, as much as the tickets are. You don’t want to hear someone say that they’re a financial planner and they paid for the people that they were with them’s tickets. But the show was good.”
“To everyone who is angry/disappointed about the election results: The U.S. survived the 2000 election, when President George W. Bush was chosen by the Supreme Court; therefore, the U.S. will survive the 2012 election in which President Barack Obama was chosen by the electorate.”

“Good to see Allan Powell and Democrats finally taking responsibility for the economy. They yell ‘Forward,’ as the layoff bomb hits the day after the election (unreported by The Herald-Mail). The corporate world warned Democrats of the consequences of Obamacare, and people thought they were bluffing. The layoffs are real and they’re huge, and Democrats own them. Next up, ‘Forward’ over the fiscal cliff.”
